Devin is evicted; Frankie and Cody win HoH

July 17, 2014

6:00-7:00 PM: During the live show, Devin was evicted by a unanimous vote of 11-0. Julie announced that America had voted for Team America to get a physical threat nominated this week. If successful, they will each receive $5,000.

7:00-8:00 PM: When the feeds returned, we found out that Frankie and Cody had won the HoH competition. Zach went to Frankie in order to try to figure out who he will nominate, saying that the obvious choices are Amber, Victoria and Jocasta. Frankie said that he just wants to enjoy the win for a minute. He said that he has an idea but it is not good, but may be what is best. They did discuss that the two of them, Cody and Derrick are safe this week.

8:00-9:00 PM: Derrick and Zach discussed nominations. They agreed that Brittany, Jocasta and Victoria will definitely be going on the block. Derrick pointed out that they need to put Jocasta and Brittany up on opposite sides because they are their targets. The reason behind targeting those two is that they are working with Donny. Zach suggested that the idea option would be nominating Victoria and Jocasta on one side and Amber and Brittany on the other. They figured that Amber and Brittany would win the Battle of the Block but that’s fine since Jocasta could then go home as long as she doesn’t win the Power of Veto. Frankie joined them and they continued the same discussion. Frankie didn’t want to have to be the one to nominate Brittany and Amber, partially due to the fact that he wanted to keep his HoH. Derrick said that there is no way that Cody will nominate both Brittany and Amber, and it would be best if he didn’t nominate Amber since he’s trying to reel her in. They left things unresolved and mentioned that Frankie and Cody can figure it out later.

10:00-11:00 PM: Zach told Cody that he and Derrick had talked things over and decided that Jocasta, Victoria, Amber and Brittany need to be the nominees, with Jocasta and Brittany going up on opposite sides. Cody pointed out that he told Derrick last night that Brittany and Amber should go up together. Cody said that he cannot put them up, seeing as Amber has trusted him with information and has gotten close to him. Zach told him that he will have to get Frankie to do it then, and he can nominate Victoria and Jocasta. Cody was down with that. They agreed that one of Brittany, Jocasta or Donny have to go home this week. Donny would be the backdoor option if Brittany or Jocasta win the Power of Veto.

11:00-12:00 AM: Frankie came out of the diary room and informed Derrick of the new Team America mission. he said that they have to put up a physical threat, either with the initial nominations or as a replacement nominee. Either HoH can make the nomination. A physical threat is defined as anyone that the three Team America members unanimously decide is a physical threat. Frankie said Amber is an example, given that she is a big female competitor. Derrick said that there is no doubt that Amber is the strongest female competitor in the house.

12:00-1:00 AM: Frankie and Cody got their HoH rooms. After all but Frankie, Cody, Zach and Derrick cleared out, they had a quick discussion about nominations. Derrick suggested that Frankie nominate Amber so that Cody can stay clean with her. He suggested that Frankie nominate Amber and Jocasta, while Cody would nominate Victoria and Brittany. Zach felt that it would be better to nominate Amber and Brittany together. Frankie said that he would be fine with nominating them and would be fine with nominating any combination of those four girls. Derrick said that Jocasta or Brittany need to go this week. Zach agreed but also threw Donny’s name into the mix.

1:00-2:00 AM: Team America met up to discuss their mission. Derrick and Frankie informed Donny that they need to nominate a physical threat. Donny figured that they would have to nominate a guy. Derrick said that the strongest physical threat for a girl right now is Amber. Donny said “most definitely”. He questioned if they have to do anything more than put her on the block. The guys told him no. Donny said that he was on board for nominating Amber. He then went back to bed. Frankie told Derrick that he agrees with nominating Amber, Brittany, Jocasta and Victoria. He didn’t want to nominate Brittany, while Derrick said that it’s best for their game that Cody doesn’t nominate Amber. Frankie said that he will nominate Amber and tell Caleb that she is all over the place and he slipping away from him anyway. Frankie didn’t want to nominate Brittany. Derrick said that that was fine, as Cody can do it and get some blood on his hands.

3:00-4:00 AM: Frankie, Cody, Derrick and Zach discussed nominations. It was decided that Cody would nominate Brittany and Victoria, while Frankie would nominate Jocasta and Amber. They discussed that Brittany would be the target. Jocasta would be the fallback option if Brittany’s side won the Battle of the Block. The plan was to tell Amber that she is definitely not the target and that she has the votes, so she is safe. Cody that he would want to consider backdooring Donny if the opportunity presents itself. Cody was concerned that Amber could end up being the one leaving. He said that they can’t let that happen or else they will lose Caleb. Hayden joined them and said that he would like to see Brittany or Amber leave cause they are flip floppers and are the better competitors. He views Jocasta and Victoria as floaters. Frankie said that he does not want Amber to go home under his HoH. Hayden vouched for Donny. Zach did as well but pointed out that he does have an alliance with Brittany and Jocasta called “The Outsiders”. They agreed that the idea situation would be Brittany going home.

4:00-5:00 AM: Frankie informed Caleb that he was thinking about putting Amber on the block. Caleb said that it’s fine and told him to do it. Frankie let him know that he wouldn’t have done it unless Caleb was okay with it. Caleb said that Amber will try to save Brittany. He added that he doesn’t trust them. Frankie told Caleb that they may backdoor Donny if they get the opportunity to do so. The others had discussed that they would tell Caleb that earlier. Meanwhile, Cody and Amber were talking game. Amber said that she adores Brittany and she deserves to be there for her kids but she turned on them. Cody was upset that he and Derrick worked to save Brittany and then she wasn’t appreciative and flipped to the other side. Amber wanted to work something out to get Brittany to be the first one out at jury, feeling that she deserves it more than Victoria. That being said, she didn’t like that Amber would nominate all guys.

6:00-7:00 AM: Brittany told Cody that she believes that Jocasta deserves to be there more than a lot of them. She wouldn’t name names, so Cody said that he thought that they had gotten to the point where she wouldn’t have to beat around the bush. Brittany said that she is not and that she is at a point where she doesn’t care anymore. She said that she just hopes that Jocasta makes it further. Brittany explained that the lies and people acting fake is exhausting. Cody pointed out that there was a lot of realness between them and she turned her back on it. Brittany said that she isn’t turning on him just because she doesn’t throw herself at him like the others. Cody felt that that was an immature statement. He was disappointed that he put his game on the line for her and she is turning her back.

Both felt that each other was hesitant to address their issues and talk it over. Brittany said that she hasn’t heard anything about Cody, though she has heard a lot about Derrick and still tells him the most of anyone. Brittany pointed out that the girls in the house are driving her insane. She said that she assumes that she is going home this week. Brittany did a run down of how things will go the rest of the way. She said that Nicole and Christine and Caleb and Amber will stay paired up. She suggested that Zach and Frankie will float, while Victoria will be the new Paola. Cody went back to saying that he thought that the loyalties would have been clear after Week 2 but he heard that she said stuff. Brittany denied having said anything about him, stating that she has the most honest game. Cody was upset that Brittany suggested that he would target the girls based on which chases him around the least. Cody felt that after what he did for Brittany it would be dumb for her not to come talk to him just cause he is with a bunch of people in the HoH room.
